Boise State romps past Spartans

SAN JOSE, Calif. ? Kellen Moore and his Boise State teammates
sucked out any drama with such a fast start against San Jose that
the loudest cheers in the second half were for games thousands of
miles away.

With the third-ranked Broncos putting the finishing touches on a
48-0 victory over the Spartans on Saturday night, the sizable
contingent of Boise State fans took great pleasure when hearing No.
1 Ohio State had lost. “Crazy things happen,” Moore said. “Our job
is to make sure we’re not on the end of one of those.” The Broncos
(6-0, 2-0 WAC) made sure it didn’t happen this week. Moore
completed 14-of-16 passes for 231 yards and two touchdowns before
putting on a baseball cap and headset to signal plays in the second
half of the Broncos’ latest blowout. Titus Young and Doug Martin
each scored two touchdowns to help Boise State extend the longest
active winning streak in major
college
football to 20 games. Boise State
also could be at the top of another list come Sunday. The Broncos
were projected to be No. 1 in the BCS standings last week and have
a good chance of being there when the initial standings are
released Sunday. The Broncos have never been higher than fourth in
the BCS standings, placing at that spot in last year’s initial
list. They fell to sixth by the end of the regular season, despite
remaining undefeated. “It will mean something December 6th,” coach
Chris Petersen said. “That’s when the rankings mean something.
Every week something happens, someone else goes down. It doesn’t
mean anything right now to us. It means something to everybody else
out there. It gives them something to talk about. We’re just going
back to work.” San Jose State (1-6, 0-2) lost its 18th straight
game to a ranked opponent, including five already this season. The
Spartans have been outscored 204-33 in those contests against
Alabama, Wisconsin, Utah, Nevada and Boise State. LOUISIANA TECH
48, IDAHO 35: At Ruston, La., Ross Jenkins threw for three

Athletic Conference) needed their fifth-highest offensive total in
school history as the Vandals (3-3, 0-1) totaled 526 offensive
yards. Louisiana Tech trailed 14-10 midway through the second
quarter, but answered with three straight scores by Jenkins.

for 117 yards and Lennon Carter added 179 yards rushing and two

Vandals, and Justin Veltung had six catches for 141 yards and four
